A film that marks Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's first leading role in a family-friendly comedy, THE GAME PLAN finds the former pro wrestler starring as Joe Kingman, a popular NFL quarterback happily entrenched in a carefree single lifestyle. Kingman's world is turned upside-down, however, when a young girl named Peyton Kelly (Madison Pettis) appears from out of the blue, claiming to be his daughter from a brief former marriage. Reluctantly, Kingman must learn how to shake his self-absorption and become a father, leading to hijinks that involve the inevitable clash of macho-man and little-girl cultures. Directed by Andy Fickman (SHE'S THE MAN), this likable Disney movie is hoisted up by the muscular Johnson, who finally gets a chance to showcase his winking charm and impressive comic timing at length. Although Johnson is no stranger to portraying football players (see 2006's GRIDIRON GANG), THE GAME PLAN is far lighter fare than his previous films, opening up at another door in his intriguing WWE-to-Hollywood career. The comedy also features an excellent supporting cast, most notably, the precocious Pettis, along with Morris Chestnut, who plays Kingman's thoughtful teammate Travis Sanders, and Kyra Sedgwick, on leave from her hard-hitting role in THE CLOSER TV show as Kingman's workaholic agent. Nodding to Disney live-action comedies of yore while conveying a 21st-century sheen, THE GAME PLAN hits all of its intended goals, making it one of 2007's most enjoyable family movies

Girls will like it because of the ballet and boys will like it because of the football and Dwayne 'the rock' Johnson.
It's good fun, will make you smile, and is just a lovely film to watch together.
who suddenly finds out he has a Daughter that he never knew about,that upsets his way of life!!Pretty good on the whole!
But be aware that the 'US' BLU RAY of “The Game Plan” is REGION-A LOCKED - so it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.
Buy the standard UK issue instead - it's cheap - a looker on BLU RAY and a top family movie into the bargain…
The storyline is gripping and my cousins and nephew fell in love with it, so did i!
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is great as the sportsman who likes to party and relax with his teammates and he really isn't a fan of children, so he's not to happy to find the ultra cute and cheeky Madison Pettis in the doorway of his luxury apartment, claiming she is his daughter. Cue lots of silly scenes and some touching moments and you've got a great Sunday afternoon film for the family.
